Let's work together...


Celebrity designer Angelo Surmelis has dedicated his life to making spaces both beautiful and functional. 

Angelo's journey began in a small one-bedroom Chicago apartment he shared with his parents. At just six years old, he would lean against the walls, hoping to make the rooms bigger. When that didn’t work, he took matters into his own hands by rearranging the furniture while his parents slept. His mother, concerned for his safety, tried to dissuade him, but his father recognized Angelo's talent and said, “Leave the kid alone. Every time he moves stuff around, the place just looks better.” And thus, a life in design was born.

From transforming a 1,000-square-foot California bungalow to designing celebrity homes, TV and film sets, and offering design tips on morning shows, Angelo embodies design.

Currently, he splits his time between southern California and the Midwest, doing what he loves most—solving design challenges and helping clients turn their houses into homes.
